I´m finally doing this! I bought the Cannabis kit on December 2020, and it took a while to set it up.
My kit has a name by the way, Kitlandia.
I´m starting with 10 Somango seeds.
-It´s a cross between the Jack Herer and Big Skunk.
– 75% Indica / 25% Sativa.
I never tried Somango before. Until very recently I would only smoke sativas, mostly Amensia. I´ve been switching now to more indica-dominant hybrid and I mix it with CBD. I don´t use any tobacco.
I started to germinate the Somango seeds. I got them as a gift with the purchase of the Cannabis kit.
I placed them wrapped in soaked paper towels in between 2 plates. Keep them in a dark place, with moderate temperature. I checked them everyday, making sure the paper towels were wet, until the taproot came out.
7 seeds got the taproot, I sowed the seeds on soil substrate for cannabis, and I placed them in the tent.
Checking the PH of the water has been a challenge too. It was either too low or too high.
Now, based on the PH chart, I´m on a 7.5. I´ve been using filter water.
My notes says it should be between 6 to 7.
First thing to figure out: How to decrease it a little bit?
The first 4 stems came out today! Some are tiny, but beautiful. I placed the LED as low as possible.
My humidity is on 40% RH, which is low according to my notes. It says it should be between 50% to 60% RH.
Second thing to figure it out: How to increase the humidity? I’m watching tutorials and reading blogs.
I´m starting to check placing the thermometer in different areas. How much can it change?
To increase the humidity without having to invest right away, I tried adding bowls of hot water next to the vent and the intractor.
I don´t think is a practical idea, and it doesn´t last long. I have been looking at humidifiers, I will try to buy it next month, so for now, I´m stuck with the bowls.
I tried placing the thermometer on top of the soil, and it went up to 42%RH. Then I watered them, waited a while and it went up to 45%RH.
Still trying to figure things out here!
Today I went to one of my Cannabis associations and they had Somango.
I´m finishing today trying for the first time my future Marias. It was delicious, and the high was just right.
Any experienced growers, feel free to give me some tips! https://lacatalove.com/cannabis-blog/
